I really liked the description and this had good reviews, but ....I made this recipe twice because I thought I really would like this, as the sauce had a nice flavor, but I really do not think it was made for salmon! Perhaps a good salad dressing or veggie sauce, I'm not sure, but if you like the taste of salmon and are used to it being savory, I definitely reccomend not using this recipe. Sorry to be so harsh, but I used $35.00 of fish on the way, 4 stars is my lowest rating previous to this, so I really do try to be kind!

I like sweet marinades, mostly with chicken. Never would've thought a sweet marinade would taste great on salmon; I usually prefer dill, butter and lemon. My DH said "impressive"; and I was impressed as well! Thank you for picking this up at the grocery store and posting it! :) I marinated for the 10 minutes; I cooked 1 1/2 lbs salmon fillet cut in 3 in microwave: 8 minutes high, covered with plastic wrap. Took out, basted and back in micro, with wrap, on high for 6 minutes. Unbelieveable taste and texture. DH reheated his at work in the micro, and still gave this rave reviews.

I was cooking for one and just made all the marinade but had only one bit of fish I marinated this for about one hour and then cooked it in the oven. It had a really nice flavour and I will make it again. Made for Honor thy Mother the diabetic forum M2011
